In Florida neither the seller or the agent are required to disclose this information.  And the law protects them from legal action. These types of things are not considered to be material defects in a home. People may not like it that someone died in a home, but the truth is that it in now way should affect the value of the home. Look at it this way, up north we buy homes that are 100+ years old. Chances are that at some point someone died in the home, and if it happened near the early 1900's they probably had the funeral at home as well. Or consider this, have you ever been to the hospital overnight. Well, it is very likely that someone died in the very bed you were sleeping in! Yet nothing bad happened. Sometimes it is best not to over thing things or to have TOO MUCH information that in reality has no effect on the home you wish to buy.

"Come to find out the previous owner and elderly woman died in the house and wasn't found for days.  This was not disclosed to us at time of purchase." -

The disclosure statement doesn't require disclosure of issues that are not demeaned to be a problem or defect with the building nor property.  Nor does it require one to disclose problems one is not aware of, or problems that are considered "normal" and thus not "problems".

Actually, prayers for blessing of a property and cleansing of a property prior to people moving in is quite normal, and frequently practiced.  One does not need the specifics of what happened there previously.

"since people carry energy and leave behind energy after they leave a very frequented place" -

I probably have done a lot more energy measurements than you, and probably have a lot more equipment for measuring energy than you, and probably have more degrees and licenses regarding energy than you.  I also probably have a lot better understanding of the entire Bible, and numerous faith beliefs than you.

I was only suggesting that unfounded superstitions propagated by those that claim to be "professionals" only creates unnecessary stress and worry and serves no positive benefit.

One interesting thing I saw in one home where it was claimed there were negative spirits creating negative health impacts was where a contractor had installed knob and tube wiring creating a "loop" directly above a bathroom, thus an electromagnetic field directly around a person sitting on the toilet or in front of the toilet, anytime an appliance was run in the kitchen.  And no "inspector" noticed it, nor even took the time to look.  It took only 10 minutes to correct it.

As for a depressing atmosphere; a little paint, and replacement of fabrics does wonders.  Still, you need to remove all mold damaged materials (drywall...) first.  And when you bring any furniture or other "possessions" into a building, you are just as likely to be bringing in "depression" from any one of a large number of causes.

With the amount of negative energy that Georgina has posted on this one thread, you probably don't want to let her in your house under any circumstances.  You have no idea what she will leave behind.

Our previous home was over 100 years old...boy the stories I could tell you!  After a year of problems we contacted our realtor because we had had enough and wanted to sell...our realtor asked us why and my husband told her that we were having paranormal issues.  She cut us off and told us to give her another reason because if we were indeed having problems she would have to disclose it to potential buyers.  So it does happen...to make a long story short we had a Catholic priest bless the house and it stopped.  Come to find out the previous owner and elderly woman died in the house and wasn't found for days.  This was not disclosed to us at time of purchase.

I know the market's slow, but wise up Georgina. If this rube thinks that these are legit issues, they'd hire a psychic for the answer instead of bellyaching here.

Thank you for the rude comment Pasadenan but I assure you that I have no mental health issues. You may tend to leave negative energy in your wake.  I'm merely stating that people leave energy behind whether alive or dead. Also, many of what you stated is correct pertaining to the materials that can affect emotional disturbance in a person.

Further, no one knows why the OP is asking these questions and some are just jumping to conclusions that it's a paranormal issue, which may or may not be so. Many people have passed on all over the world but some sections are more depressed than others due to the attrocities of a particular event.

For now, it's best to check the pipes and materials in the home first before assuming it might be paranormal.

Close to 100% of the house have been visited or worked on by a psychopath at some point.  The US is full of sub-criminal psychopaths.

If the property was related to mental health issues, it was either:
1) lead paint
2) lead pipes
3) lead in the water piping solder
4) radon
5) radioactive drywall or radioactive granite
6) EMF from high voltage power lines in the area
7) EMF from high power communications towers or antennas in the area.
8) Smog from freeway or train traffic
9) Improper ventilation for heating/cooking systems
10) Excessive noise from neighbors or transformers...
11) Nicotine on walls and ceilings.
12) roach or rat infestations

If it is any of these, you need to make sure your home inspector looks for those issues for correction, not past event records.

For issues of energy left behind by other people...  you might check which spiritual beliefs you actually accept.  If you are Christian, consider the words of Paul in his letter to the Romans:
"For I am certain that neither death nor life, angels nor principalities, powers, things present nor things to come, height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation can separate us from the love of God through Christ Jesus our Lord".  Rm 8.38-39.

If you are concerned with bacteria or viruses left behind, they have a very limited time span they can survive outside a host.  Probably 2 months at the outside.  If you are concerned with mold or other spores, there are test kits you can buy yourself to send to the lab, or you can have your home inspector check these things for you.

If it is "energy" issues from prior occupants; I know some really good exorcists.

And make sure you never go to a hospital, as people die there all the time.  For that matter, never go to a doctor either.  For that matter, never even go to a public nor private school...  Better yet, just get a new religion as there are many that promise to "save" you from such destruction.  It is Georgina's mental health issues that will keep you from enjoying your environment no matter where you are.

Sunnyview, a psychic feels and/or sees things but it doesn't mean that they know everything or that they can fore tell the future. It's a total misconception. Haven't you ever walked onto a property and felt depression in there? It doesn't even have to be from a deceased person since people carry energy and leave behind energy after they leave a very frequented place.

Tweetster it's very difficult to determine what has transpired in a home unless it's documented. You may have to check with the neighbors or even do a little research on the property. Library sometimes carry info on the town and particular properties in the area. You can also check out the tax roll history of owners and see if by name, you can find something on them.

Why does it matter? Probably 50% of the houses in this country have had one of those three either a death, mentally ill resident/visitor or had violence happen in it or on that piece of land at some point. If you were truly sensitive or psychic to past events held in houses, you would not need to ask anyone about whether they had happened there or not. You would already know. If you don't, then there is nothing to bother you. Focus on actual issues like termites, lead paint, bad neighbors etc.
